Samsung Keeps Increasing Pressure At Apple

Samsung Tower Palace 3 - Tower GImage via WikipediaApple accuses Samsung to steal ideas from them. Samsung now said that Apple is free riding on their patents. No more.
Lee Younghee also said "We've been quite respectful and also passive in a way" and added "However we shouldn't be... anymore".

And this is for a good reason. If you look at the product line, in terms of design, Samsung had models looking a bit like the iPhone, before it came on the market. Not only that, some technologies and ideas are originally from Samsung, so they claim. And if you dig a little deeper, then you might think iot's true.

In this ugly business, Samsung has learned a lesson: You need to sue first. And they will in Korea to restrict the iPhone5 to go on sale. Apple needs to learn a lesson, too: If you copy yourself other's products, you should consider to just shut up.

AP Interview: Samsung to Step up Apple Patent War - ABC News: "A top Samsung executive says the company will take a bolder stance in its patent battle with smartphone and tablet rival Apple, which Samsung claims has been "free riding" on its patented wireless technologies."
